I am really a bit freaked out that it is almost Christmas AGAIN and well, I’m still not divorced. I know, that sounds so…. Well, not very pretty. And I like my blog to be pretty. Or funny. Or quirky. Or clever. But whiny? Depressing? No, not really my cuppa tea. But dang… How many attorneys does it take to unscrew a light bulb?
I pretty excited about Christmas this year – I’m not sure why – but I’m home and Ruby is a bit more aware and its just such a magical time. We pulled the Christmas decorations out of the spare room and I’m *so glad* I bought some extra things on clearance last year. I’m stalking Ebay looking for a fabulous vintage aluminum tree on the cheap.
Ruby and I are doing a “craft” tomorrow – we had some glitter snowflakes and glitter letters (red and silver) from last year – we are going to get some scrap wood and make rustic glittery signs – with things like Peace & Love & Joy and such hanging in glitter letters over the rustic painted wood. I can’t wait – and I’ll post pictures 🙂
So Christmas – I’m asking for it to come a wee bit early this year – and hang around a bit late…and shhh…I’m really terrible – but I’m THRILLED I am not buying gifts for the ex this year. He had a habit of going out Christmas Eve and blowing our set limits – it always felt like a one-up kinda thing and I”m sure it wasn’t – I love Christmas so much I can’t say mean things like that…But..I’m happy that I’m making gifts with Roo and partner-less. Really! 🙂
